Hello everyone – As of 2/16/2017, we have introduced a new section in the encounter note: your practice can now add, track, and review lab and imaging orders directly within a chart note, allowing you to see a more holistic view of your patient visits with fewer clicks.
You can read more about how to add or create a lab or imaging order here:
Hi there -
From the encounter, you can invoke a lab order much as you would from the rest of the patient profile by selecting Actions > Add lab order. From the order summary screen, you can also select a chart note to associate the order with an encounter.
Hope that helps!

Hi there -
1 - Ordering follow up labs
This is currently under consideration to be added to our ordering functionality as I understand it's a much needed feature.
2 - Allowing staff to place orders/specify requesting provider
Anyone in your practice can place an order and specify both the primary provider for the patient as well as the ordering provider. These drop downs are available on the last page of the order prior to submitting.
